Because the server where I was hosting the file was shut down, I created a gist on You can access it here.

I am using SourceMate with latest prerelase build of Adobe Flash Builder. It still has some issues but otherwise it’s quite cool. It adds features that most Java developers can expect in either IDE they choose. Personally I like refactoring features, implement/override and code assist for metadata the most. Since we extensively use Parsley in our projects, I thought it would be useful to add it’s metadata tags to SourceMate configuration. If you find any mistakes please let me know.

Follow these instructions to make it work:

  1. Download this file and unpack it.
  2. Run Flash Builder, choose Window > Preferences > SourceMate > Metadata and click “Import…” button.
  3. Choose downloaded XML file
  4. Click “Open”. You’re done!

I can’t upload small XML/ZIP, not even paid upgrades allow that. How uncool is that, WordPress?

Big thanks for Espen for hosting that file for me.

Anyway, I hope that helps!


You may encounter some problems with code autocompletion when switching to one of the latest builds of Adobe Flex SDK, especially if you are using Flash Builder Beta 2 and not one of the latest prerelease builds. Flash Builder will be unable to complete class names and add imports from flash.* package. This is because Adobe is getting ready to include playerglobal.swc for version 10.1 of Flash Player.

To make autocompletion work again, you need to:

  1. Rename folder <sdk install dir>/frameworks/libs/player/10.0 to 10
  2. Remove all occurences of “.{targetPlayerMinorVersion}” from flex-config.xml file located in <sdk install dir>/frameworks.
  3. If SDK you are currently modifying is your current one – restart Flash Builder. If not, you may just switch to it without restarting.

Hope that helps!
